I loved the Crafts Museum. It was quiet when we went (unlike the craziness at Akshardham temple) and the trees and shade were very welcome. There are lots of great examples of India crafts with quite a few craftspeople working in the yard (I'm imagining there'd be even more when it's not so hot out, we were there mid-July) and... More

We weren't really given an overview of what exactly the craft museum was. All we knew was we couldn't take indoor photos since we signed a waiver saying so. Much of the place is under construction so it wasn't all that extensive. Inside areas were VERY hot but the stuff on display was very cool like the chariot! If you... More

Not the most elaborate museum but the textile section is particularly informative. Given the rich variety of Indian crafts, a lot more CAN and SHOULD be exhibited

Not a touristy place. There is a large area where simple village buildings from throughout India are placed. You can wander through them. Some of the inside rooms were under construction, so there was not a lot to see there, though there was a nice textile display upstairs when we visited and an impressive two-story wooden chariot in a courtyard....

I should be present on the must - visit places. The place is simple yet elegant. The museum has stalls from all across the country displaying their specialties. The museum also has interesting paintings from the old legends. Apart from the Museum, Cafe Lota in the premises is an add - on advantage of visiting this place.
